In the presence of zinc, the protein tubulin assembles into two-dimensional sheets that are a useful model system for the study of both tubulin and microtubule structure. Tubulin sheets present an ideal protein structure for study with atomic force microscopy because they contain a two-dimensional crystalline protein lattice and retain many of the structural features of tubulin and microtubules. However, high-resolution imaging requires nonperturbative immobilization onto an appropriate imaging… CONTINUE READING
